Think all four had different issues

Skylanders - no real change since swap force. Ideas were tired.
Infinity - over estimated demand, and contract deals for bad charaters
Lego - Hard to follow new toys per wave, high prices
Amiibo - passengers on the great ship wiiu
Hey now, amiibo are still kicking it for some of us! just look at the resurgence of demand for that SSB Link :wink:

I use all my open zeldo amiibo in BotW daily. Awesome at replenishing supplies
That Link isn't helping poor walugi at 3 dollars clearance.
Or all the Animal Crossing crew...poor Totakeke, love that series but damn they are not getting the love

Hmmm, should I get Snowspeeder or Slave 1?

That Snowspeeder looks nice! Thanks for the heads up - might just have to get one.

I would still go with the Slave I if I HAD to choose between the two. The snowspeeder is a closer 2nd to the Slave I for me compared to the tie fighter. I like the tie a lot as a vehicle, but it was more of a repetitive build than I imagine the snowspeeder would be. Only thing I don't like right now is too many stickers. Slave I had too many as well. It's really boss though. Still hoping for a reissue/update of the Falcon...

The Snowspeeder is really great looking! Definitely going to pick one up.

And if you don't already have the Slave I, I highly recommend that one. It was a really fun build and it looks fantastic!

Yeah Slave 1 for sure, you will have more time to get the snowspeeder than that.
